Language Learning the Digital Way: Sheltered Instruction + Technology

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

U.S. classrooms and classrooms across the globe strive to meet the needs of a growing number of students of diverse backgrounds. What these students have in common is the need to master a new language and embrace a new culture. This can be overwhelming, intimidating and motivating - all at the same time.

English language learners (ELLs), limited English experience students (LEEs) and learners of languages other than English (LOTE) need ample opportunities to develop social and academic vocabulary, and make academic progress in a highly engaging, accepting and supportive classroom environment.

Participants in this session will learn field-tested sheltered instruction strategies enhanced by a variety of technology tools and resources that will help students learn how to learn, gain self confidence and make significant progress toward mastery.

Participants are asked to install the Read&Write Google Chrome extension prior to the session and request a free teacher premium account at https://rwchrome.texthelp.com/drive/Home/RegisterTeacher
